Each year, National Gummi Worm Day gets a day of recognition on July 15th. Gummi worms are a gelatin candy created by a German company called Trolli.

Gummy worms are green and red but come in a variety of flavors, such as sweet and sour! These creepy treats are one of the best-selling candies of all time. Gummi worms are inspired by the original gummi candy, gummy bears. Other sweet and sour gummy treats include snakes, peaches, and gumdrops, just to name a few.

While you can snack on gummi worms all on their own, they make great additions to desserts like dirt pudding and casket pie. You can also add them to your ice cream, parfaits, and beverages.
